Theatre as an art form is in defiance of the virus’s attempt to silence us—the darkness and stillness has only made the voices of our artists stronger and more urgent. After being kept from our spaces for so long, to adhere to our usual practice of announcing one season of work felt insufficient in honoring the artistic community we're so grateful to be a part of. We return with confidence and joy—bold in our artmaking but still cautious in our approach to health and safety.
"NYTW’s education program provided an artistic oasis, and a sense of belonging, for U.S. high school students hungry for change." American Theatre Magazine went behind the scenes with our Youth Artistic Instigators as they created a virtual performance of entirely new work. Meet some of these incredible young people and hear about their experience.
Helen Shaw proclaims, "Instead of adapting Chekhov’s 1895 play for actors, Celine Song remade it for the video game’s AI-driven avatars. One of the offerings from New York Theatre Workshop’s virtual season, Song’s two-night, nearly six-hour Seagull was head and wings above other experiments in digital theater."
